Atchison, Kan., Sept. 11. — Mrs. S.
F. Taylor, a wealthy resident of Rich-
mond, Va., arrived here this morn-
ing and found her son, Frank Souder,
whose whereabouts had been un-
known for some time. Souder, who
is a minor, recently married a girl in
Hiawatha, Kan, whom Mrs. Taylor
considered beneath the station of the
family, and she left to-day with her
son for San Francisco. The bride is
at Horton, and does not khow of her
husbands desertion. Souder, who
was i:i reduced circumstances, came to
Atchison a few days ago and went to
work as a street car conductor.
Hryan NhIm a Thief.
Atchison, Kan., Sept 11,—A feature
of the Ury an meeting here j'esterday
was t he orator's capture of a pick-
pocket. As the people crowded up to
the stand after the speech, a pick-
pocket got in liis work through the
crowd until he had made his way up

aian tried to "touch" the orator while
giving him the glad hand, and was
seized by his intended victim, who
sang out: "Hold him, boys." People
uy the dozen discovered they had been
robbed. The first policeman to arrive
found Bryan hanging to the thief in
regulation 4*cop" style. The man is a
stranger in Atchison.

Mobile, Ala., Sept. 15. —-Three cases
of yellow fever were officially an-
nounced yesterday by the board of
health. This caused mucl- more alarm
than did the discovery of the first case,
which was regarded as sporadic. The
people who can are leaving for points
of safety. Some 8TUO worth of tickets
to A tlanta were sold to-day by the
Louisville A Nashville railroad, and
the trains are leaving crowded. The
same is true of the trains on the
Mobile &. Ohio.
New Orleans, La., Sept. 15.—The
books of the V")ard of health show the
following recapitulation of the yellow
fever situation: There had been re-
ported to the board )f investigation
ti* .'nty-six cases which the attending
physicians considered suspicious. Of
these, thirteen cases had been found
suffering with a harmless fever, five
cases were regarded as suspicious but
necessary to be further investigated
before a definite report could be made
upon them; there were no reports as
to four eases and four eases had been
pronounced genuine yellow fever,
though one of the latter was classed
as of mild type. The most serious of
the four yellow fever cases
is located in the neighborhood
of the French market. The
locality is far from a cleanly one, is
populated by a poorer class of people,
many of whom are foreigners, and
might be considered dangerous
ground. For that reason especial
pains were taken by the board of
health to quarantine the infected
houses. Oflicers from the police foice
were detailed to take charge of the
neighborhood, a restaurant, a bakery
and a shop next door to the premises
in which the sickness was found were
closed, and a disinfectant was sent to
the scene to be used. Of course the
report of new cases daily is creating
alarm in some quarters, but thus far
the disease has shown but little
malignancy, as witness the record of
one death out of fourteen cases and
none of the practiclsing physicians is
yet on record as expressing a fear of
Out of a population of twenty-five,
only three persons in Barclay have
not had the sickness, and the percent-
age of death has been what is usual in
yellow fever epidemics.
There are several new cases reported
to-day at Ocean Springs, and of the
number of ill at Biloxi, fifteen are re-
ported as suffering with yellow fever.
At Ocean Springs, Dr. Wasdin, of the
Marine hospital staff, is receiving the
best of attention, and it is hoped he
will pull through in a few days.
Jackson*, Miss., Sept. 15.—This has
been another day of excitement and
anxiety to the people of Jackson. The
city is now surrounded on all sides by
an armed guard and the quarantine
rules are enforced with great strict-
ness. The principal cause of alarm to
the people of Jackion came from Ed-
wards, only twenty-five miles distant,
where there are now thirty-five cases
of dengue, at least three of which
were reported last night to be consid-

Strike Rapidly Spread lug Turoughoat
the Coal District.
, II azklton, Pa., Sept. 15.—Despite a
variety of alarming rumors and a
morning movement by a body of
miners which looked formidable, yes-
terday passed off without serious dis-
turbances in the strike region. Mat-
ters still wear such an uncertain as-
pect, however, that General Gobin de-
clares that the removal of the troops
or any portion of them has not been
contemplated. The strike itself is
spreading with great rapidity. Exact
estimates of the number of men who
have qui I work are ha^d te obtain, hot
conservative figures place it close to
10,000, with indications that in a shoit
time every colliery of importance in
the region will be idle. Although
some disposition has been shown by
small bodies of strikers in the outly-
ing districts to make demonstrations,
they have been of a rather feeble
character, and the great majority of
the men are docile.

She was aroused by some one trying
to throttle her. She sprang up and

Soon a crowd gathered, and mean-

Among the Murdered.
CoitMiu'i, Kan., Sept. 15.—In the
district court in session here yester-
day George Startle back and his mother,
Mrs. George Wilson, were found guilty
of murder in the lirst aud second
degree, respectively. The triul of Kil
StulHeback, u brother of George,
barged with murder in the first de-
gree, is now in progress and a convic-
tion is certain.
The trial has brought forth some
shocking developments, and gives the
gang the distinction of rivaling the
famous Ilcnders in the number aud
colli blooded character of its crimes.
On July IV last the body of Gal-
breath was found in mi abandoned
mine in the outskirts of the town, and
George. Kdward aud Michnel Stattle-
back and their mother, Mrs. Wilson,
who lived notorious and disreputable
lives in two small houses near the
shaft, were placed under arrest.
Charles Wilson, the second husband
and stepfather, was the only one to
The principal witness during the
trial, which was held a* Oolnmbns,
was Cora StaMeback, the wife of
ieorge. She is a Missouri girl whom
George met and married away front
home and brought here. When she
learned the character of the family
slie would have escaped, bat feared
for her life and remained to witness
the killing of Gal breath and several
others. A Mrs. McCombs, who took
up with the family in some way, was
also an unwilling witness to several
crimes, but feared to leave and ifl-
vulge them. She also gave valuable
testimony for the state.
According to the evidence. Gulbreath
called to see a disreputable woman
who was staying at the Startleback
dive. He was refused an audience
with her and was ordered out of the
houso. As he turned togo, he was at-
tacked by Mrs. Wilson, who wielded a
orn knife. George and Kdward then
took a hand, (Ieorge tiring a bullet
through Galbreath's body and Kdward
shooting h!m in tho head I lis throat
was then cut, the pockets rifled and
the body thrown into a pit
Corn StatHeback also testified that
Edward and Michael, who followed
the circuses and fairs with various
fakes, picked up aud brought home
two foolish country girls, whom they
had induced to run away with them.
One day Edward found his girl sitting
on another man's knee. A quarrel
ensued and the girl was killed by
crushing her head in with a revolver.
The other girl was then killed by
Michael for fear she would reveal the
crime. Uoth bodies were rolled under
a bed until night, when each of the
boys took the body of a girl on his
shoulders and carried it to the pit.
An Italian peddler was killed for his
money, and his body was disposed of
in the usual waay. Cora Staffleback
also testified that, from conversations
heard at various times, she beiieved a

Immediate vicinity, but about the coal
mlues, eighteeu miles from here,
strikers are marching aud additions
have been made to the list of strikers
at several points.
The strikers have been held in check
by the priests. At several turbulent
meetings, which threatened to end in
bloodshed, the prelates went among
the excited foreigners, commanding
silenco and forcing them back. They
wurned the men that to destroy the
coal companies' property would be
only to take food from their own
mouths by shutting off future employ-
ment. The priests, however, have no
plea of mercy for the sheriff's deputies
who shot the men at Latimer, and
some of them are active members of
the committee that is to push the mur-
der charges in court
it is now certain that uo attempt
will be made to arrest the deputies as
long as the troops are camped at
Hazelton. General Gobiu's declaration
that he will protect the sheriff's men
just as long as he shall be in command
has cooled the ardor of those who
were for going about tho matter hast-
ily. The strike leaders and their at-
torneys deny the right of General
Gobin to enforce such an order, but
they admit that he has the power.

Oreen Postage Slninps.
Washington, Sept. 15.—The secre-
tary of the treasury and the postmas-
ter general, after consultation with
the president, have decided to chaage
the color of the currant 2-cenfc postage
stamps from carmine to green of the
shade now used on government notes.
The 10-cent postage stamp, which is
now printed in green, will be changed
to some other color, possibly carmine.
It Is thought that green is a more de-
sirable color than carmine, besides
saving the government about 810,000
n the difference in cost between the
Senator Wellington Quits.
Rai.timork, Md., Sept 15.—United
States Senator George L. Wellington
to-day resigned the chairmanship of
the Republican state central commit-
tee, thus relinquishing the leadership
of the party in this state, which he
has held for the past threo years.
This action is the direct result of the
Senator's defeat at the recent conven-
tion in Ocean City. In resigning Sen-
ator Wellington delivered a very bit-
ter speech, in which he predicted de-
feat for the Republican party iu Mary-

Columbia, Mo., Sept. 15.—The Mis-

opening exercises in the university
auditorium yesterday. Never before
has there been so lnrge an enrollment
on the opening day, and prospocts are
good for an attendance of over 1,000
students. Addresses were delivered
by President K. II Jesse, Judge Alex-
ander Martin, I)r. J. C. Jones and Dr.

Murdered In a Corn Held.
Lamar, Mo., Sept. 15.— A body sup-
posed to be that of Thomas Sullivan
of Springfield, Mo., was discovered in
a cornfield near the Memphis route
stock yards, south of this city, early
yesteMay morning. It was in a bad
state of decomposition, evidently hav-
ing been dead several days. A bullet
wound in the back made by a 38-cali-
ber revolver, and a wound over the
left eye, conclusively proves that he
had been foully murdered.
Washington, .Sept. 15.—Regarding
the rumor that $1,000,000 had been
misused by Captain O. M. Carter, who
had charge of the river and harbor
improvements in the district adjacent
to Savannah, Ga., and who is now
military attache of the United States
embassy in London, the secretary of
war states that there is no irregularity
in the accounts of Captain Carter, but
merely a change or departure from
the authorized plans of the war de-
partment, and whose directions he
had closely followed.
Dry Weather Causes Suffering.
Marshall, Mo. , Sept. 15.—The con-

Important Territorial Appointmeits
Washington, Sept lS.-Oklahoma
appointments are expected to be made
before the president starts again on
his summer wanderings. Attorney-
General McKenna and the president
discussed Oklahoma patronage today,
and the result is expected to be a black
eye for ex-Delegate Dennis Flynn.
Ever since tho president turned him
down by appointing Barnes aa gover-
nor,'thus placing all the patronage of
the territory in antl-Flynn ranks, the
doughty delegate has thirsted for re-
venge. All the Btories of Republican
mismanigement in Oklahoma and the
specific charges against Karnes, De
Ferd and Orput have been traced to
Flynn and his friends.
The president and Attorney-General
McKenna are angry at Flynn in conse-
quence and have decided that he is a
good man to keep outside the breast-
works. All the known Flynn men in
the territory are to be given the cold
shoulder by the administration because
of their determined efforts to bring
Governor Barnes and his appointees
into public odium,
The contest for the place occupied
by Justice Keaton is strictly between
Judge H. T. Hainer and B. F. Burwell
of Oklahoma City. If it becomes nec-
essary to turn down Hainer, because
of his alleged connection with the deal
by which Orput was slated for mar-
shal and DeFord for clerk of the court
at Oklahoma City, Burwell will prob-
ablv be seleoted.
